World randomly skipping seasons (still)


DezLamb86
  • Version: Console Fixed

So back in March I submitted this bug for PC where seasons would randomly skip, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time, whenever entering caves and apart from two comments from others saying the same thing had happened to them I didn't hear anything back. I just presumed it was bug only happening to the minority and possibly something to do with my laptop somehow. Fed up, I stopped playing for a while and having waited through quite a few bug fixes on PC I tried a fresh save file once more hoping this wouldn't happen and it still does.

Recently with DST and Shipwrecked being released for PS4 I decided I'd have a go at DS on console to get used to the controls and practice for multiplayer. I started a new ROG world (Shipwrecked linked although I have not used the Seaworthy yet) and the same thing is happening.

Spring start. The game skipped an entire Summer and Autumn when going in caves for half a day just to pick a few bulbs. It then skipped half of Winter and an entire Spring during the 2 days I was down there looking for the ruins entrance.

Today was the worst though. I'd waited on the surface through Summer and Autumn to get the giant's drops and on the first day of winter I headed to the ruins. After exploring the ruins for half a day I started to overheat. Having not got anything to cool me down (a little dumb I know because I usually prebuild everything, but who expects to overheat in Winter anyway) I rushed to the surface to face Summer. Of course hounds came so I had to deal with them before I went to base and if it wasn't for the jerky and pierogis I had on me I would have died.

As someone with 1058 hours on DST and 433 hours on DS on PC I am starting to lose my patience with the game. I presume this bug only occurs in SW compatible worlds and next time I find the motivation to start another save file I will play ROG and SW independently from then on, which is a shame because of all that lost potential for base building... and quite frankly I really enjoy having coffee in ROG :p

The bug can occur when using the Seaworthy and according to the comments on my last bug report it can also happen when entering the volcano in SW.

Any feedback on this would really be appreciated.

User Feedback


A developer has marked this issue as fixed. This means that the issue has been addressed in the current development build and will likely be in the next update.

There was a bunch of work done recently to improve the time syncing when changing worlds, switching from the forest to the cave, jumping between shipwrecked and ROG, etc. There were a lot of bugs related to those time sync problems.

Hopefully the patch should go out early next week.

Thank you so much! Is there a patch coming for both PC and PS4?

On another note I would like to thank you all for your hard work and for producing such a wonderful game. Can't wait to start enjoying it again as much as I used to :)

I bought Shipwrecked on release day and Sony took my money on release day, so I find your "in due time" comment arrogant and offensive. I, too, have the problem of seasons skipping around when I go in and out of the caves. I'll go in in early fall, spend five real-time minutes picking light blubs in continuous rain (spring) and leave in winter (blue tint). The PS4 DS streamers I watch have the same problem if they've linked their ROG world with a Shipwrecked world. I used to be a huge fan of DS on PS4, but I couldn't be more disappointed in a game or in a game developer. I waited a long time for this game. It doesn't work properly, and Klei's lack of responsiveness tells me it doesn't really care. I'm pretty sure I've purchased my last Klei game.

@1NebraskANN I'm sorry if that wording came across as uncaring, or that we weren't giving this attention. To better phrase it, the process of putting an update out onto PS4 is much more involved than putting it on to PC and takes some time. I can't say for certain when that process will be completed, but believe me, we're working hard to get these fixes out. Sorry about that and thanks for your feedback, we'll get this to you as soon as we can.

Was it Shipwrecked that Sony announced as a spring 2016 release or was it Don't Starve Together? It doesn't really matter because NEITHER of them came out in spring 2016. As I said, I've purchased my last Klei game and no more plushies or hats either. It's just one thing after another. Marking this as "fixed" is a joke. It's not fixed until the patch is available for download. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

Patch already out for PS4? Cause i still have all of these season changing problems on all my saves. Which really holds me back in playing the game. Not fixed for PS4 in my oppinion!

Fixed on PC but not on PS4. This was a bug report made specifically for DS: Console Edition so maybe change this bug from 'fixed' to 'known issue' as the term fixed and it's description are misleading.
